Bubble Watson on Jim Rome today talking about his adoption journey in his wife's adopted a baby boy. That was four weeks old actually last month and it's very goes for touching story element of adoptive father. And it there's a connection. In between between us and you just you wanna know the story I was riveted by during Bob Watson talk. About that and other things this afternoon and -- Okay. -- and -- all I stopped myself twice from saying just casually that he will not be back. Is there a scenario where hashed with all the young guys and they have -- forward but they still at the minimum salary give him a shot. Lindy Ruff is a very large admire Leo can -- but he is 35 years old. He's had three concussions and calendar year. Even at minimum salary I think they're just comes a time. You know my career was the consummate professional consummate veteran. He would've liked to played this year but it just comes a time where it's it's time. And even -- concessions on the ice he's not what he used to be calm you know you could see some age on amendment. Areas cut -- this it's different but it's the same the same discussed with Paul costs -- I have no problem with Paul Austin as a player I thought for. 1020 teams he was lights out before he got -- he was -- Mikey did two years ago. But there is just it's it was time. He was time to start moving a little bit at the old body here and get some of the new way and and I'm with you I want no part of resigning him. And it privilege has very little to do with him as a hockey player it's more. That didn't work our economy's gone now cost that's gone. Maybe it's in the amount maybe it's time for Rory to be gone and right I just it's such a different team to mean. In March than it was in November I think they made strides in in the middle of a season. And now I'm anxious to see where the strides will go after that because he certainly aren't finished. But I think they've made positive strides from just in a few months. Here's Jeff on WGR Jeff. -- -- This I got a couple point make real quick. All I watch -- -- -- not -- it showed. And all micro injure it -- the that they -- not the chewed up. Yeah that's that's my little screen does need a little bit of repair. It got -- on her radio sure. They do next. But a real quick your planet at black getting a lot out it -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know because it -- to -- to let you hear it. You know what what kind of went back up. This a lot of positive but I'm. On our traps not what strikes in the U Olympic wrap up a lot -- and -- being in the middle that people saying. But it's all there are actually in a goat -- -- -- and it offered her though. It couldn't hurt moving from eleventh to eighth for that but what it really affect what they wanna do this offseason I hope it doesn't. I still hope that if that's what they have on their mind is getting into the top three. And you know getting that giving a senator that way and as I told you earlier when we started I'm not immune to giving out an NHL senator. Depending on who that man is and what it you know what it cost the organization or whatever but. It certainly can't hurt to get to one of those youngsters it's going to be around your then you've got pots and around for awhile you've got -- around for awhile. You would have this player you're drafted around for a while. And just put that in the mix. I think that's are really good way to go. The best you can do in the NHL draft lottery is if I understand it right is move up three spots. The sabres are eleventh unless they win one team respect and that team moves up three spots. So they can only go as high as -- Toronto. Being in the top five. Where they are for the fifth. Being where they are because of a tiebreaker over Anaheim has an eight point 1% chance of ending up with the top pick winning the lottery. All I'm I'm estimating that the percentage of fans who will think the lottery was fixed if Toronto wins it is 98%. Well they all think you restrict not all -- -- many thought it was fixed when Pittsburgh got Sidney Crosby because they needed to saved hockey in Pittsburgh. Well they need saved hockey in buffalo to an NC a a player like Sidney Crosby show up when the sick -- forward bankruptcy sell off. Someone always thinks it's it's -- will be a lot of people who do have Toronto wins I will not be among them I'm just saying that I noticed. Or I don't believe that either dislike some people think the officiating slanted towards the Canadian team in the playoffs and my response always that is why is the last Canadian team the Montreal Canadians from Patrick why I was in goal the last two women got -- to win the -- Yeah it's hard to say anymore is not that many Canadian teams make the playoffs anymore. Well Paul what about the playoffs who should win. We like. While the penguins at the chic pick and I can't bet against that but I'm going with the Chicago Blackhawks in the way. Com if he's not playing I would have to adjust that the room eyes if he's in the lineup might just have this sneaky feeling. That of their goaltender started his. Get -- get better as the end of the season was coming the tape is back in the lineup but I could see that teammate can run. I think it's. Berg has a problem with their. Their schedule things flyers first. And then maybe it's Boston -- New York after that are just top teams that's a very tough way to win the cup when you have to start. With a barrel like that and that's an even match up to me so I think it's a tough year even Chicago with Toews is not a very high scoring team. And -- postal like you know teams like Vancouver and Boston. That have the right numbers for this. Leave questions. With with goaltending Vancouver's case or just history. Whatever it is so there's no team out there that seems like come a great bet. Don't know if I agree that the flyers and Pittsburgh even matchup. The flyers -- or anybody like Crosby or Malkin coming nice flurry. Seems to be able to make the big save in big situations Bert -- dog has not shown as he can do that yet. Com stronger now playing. So the ability. I just. The flyers have a lot outputs all and that's -- but not and the United -- -- in the playoffs they they play in the playoffs when Marty was the goalie. In Philadelphia maybe it was too long ago I relevant. Running guns have good luck stop and Malkin and Crosby when you're doing. Plus those with the penguins for whatever reason seem to get under the wire skin and then they that we stand up to. I have I have to take another night before I'd make a call -- that's a very tough call me to right now it's 5050 for me. Thanks for coming in my pleasure Paul Hamilton follow Paul on Twitter email and he loves it. Just do that and keep in touch with Paul try to do the same I don't know when LC Paul again Greg when we next -- On and in our dreams every night you have to follow Harrington -- -- into the -- -- -- -- -- most of polls tweets are opposed to are usually just an each other so that the you really wanna know Paul's Twitter you gotta follow here and that's right.
